Protect, invest in public media – Alban Bagbin

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, has extolled the importance of the media in nation-building and called on all stakeholders, especially the state, to support them.

He stated that no institution, including Parliament, could succeed without the role of the media.

The Speaker insisted that media institutions were a priority that every President should hold dear and invest in.

“In practical terms, you are the movers and shakers of politics and development.

There is no doubt about that and it is the reason every President should hold dear and invest in it,” Mr Bagbin said.

He made the assertion during a visit to the Graphic Communications Group Limited (GCGL) last Thursday to share his perspectives on the annual Press Freedom Index on Ghana and discuss how the media could partner Parliament to celebrate activities marking the 30th anniversary of parliamentary democracy.

Mr Bagbin also stressed the need for the public media to be protected since they represented the public interest.

“Yes, the private media is important because they have to reflect and prioritise the private interest, but the public media should be protected because of the larger public interest,” the Speaker added.
